About Kevin Mathes
Pronouns: he, him, his
Hometown: Danville, Pa.
Admissions territories: A little of everything!
Education: B.A. in Education & B.A. in Mathematics, Bucknell University; M.Ed. in College Student Personnel, Ohio University
Favorite spot on campus: The Grove, which is essentially a small forest on our campus. I love it because it radiates tranquility and reminds me to appreciate the beauty that's always around me.
Top tip for applicants: Take a moment to reflect on who you are and what aspects of yourself you want to communicate most to an admissions office. My team and I know the application can't capture everything about you and that's OK! We get really excited about the pieces you do share with us and know you'll bring even more to the Bucknell community.
Favorite quote: "If you're feeling frightened about what comes next, don't. Embrace the uncertainty. Allow it to lead you places. Be brave as it challenges you to exercise both your heart and your mind, as you create your own path towards happiness. Don't waste time with regret. Spin wildly into your next action. Enjoy the present, each moment as it comes because you'll never get another one quite like it. And if you should ever look up and find yourself lost, simply take a breath and start over. Retrace your steps and go back to the purest place in your heart, where your hope lives. You'll find your way again." ~ Everwood (TV Show)
